2011-01-26 1915GMT FOMC Statement; Fed Fund Rate - Bad for logic. Left running to see. Expect craziness. Quick profit from choppiness possible or volatility filters might catch movement. Or catastrophic failure.
2011-03-11 'Black Swan' event, massive 8.9 Richter scale earthquake hits Japan about 3.5 hours back.(0630 GMT) JPY strengthened across the board insanely. Had it happened in trading window, v16 smart SL logic would not have caught. Test to failure for this. Implement 3rd layer hard SL logic.
2011-03-12 Coming out of the trading week and programming mindset, it just hit me that the comment above comes off as rather mercenary in light of the tragedy and loss of life. One can sometimes get too entrenched in work.
Sentiments aside, look for infrastructure plays. Steel and sand probably. Going to hell one trade at a time. Sigh...
Another 'Black Swan' in a week, and this time smack in the middle of window plus after trades opened. Great data obtained. USDJPY hit fixed SL. EURGBP got out in profit. Velocity filters prevented recoveries and re-entries. System quite robust as is. Add another current bar velocity filter to be safer.
